They just need to make it like the Resident Evil remake on the GameCube that came out on the PS4/X1 recently and it will be amazing. I think Capcom will get the job done. RE2 remake has been on my most wanted list for a long time.
If done in the vein of the first game's REMake on GCN (that's what i call a proper remake), it would be most certainly welcome. RE2 is definitely a classic that could use a remake, imo it was the best in the series (bettter than RE1).
I have been saying that for very long time. They should remake the game from the bottom to the top using the newer technology not just adding few light effects and etc. That's what we will call a true remake in HD. For example, when Edios remade Tomb Raider 1 that was on PS2. The game looked perfect and even they showed pictures that was showing the differences. Already few people on Youtube they rebuilt RE2 and to say the truth it looked great! It just brought shame to Capcom if they don't do it. I personally have tried Unreal Engine to remake Syphon Filter and RE2 but I got confused with it and needed better software and no time any more as before and a team needed. I hope it will with RE2 or RE3.
